The cut out is not preventing the tractor from starting.
You need a strong battery to:
1. Spin the starter
2. Engage the bendix
3. Provide voltage to the coil.
As the battery gets weaker, the first thing to fail is your spark.
The more current you use to spin the starter, the less you have for the ignition.
If your starter pulls that battery down much below 5.2 volts, the module in the EI will not fire.
It doesn't really matter much if the battery is "fully charged" until you test it correctly. What did the load and hydrometer tests show on your battery?
